WhatsApp is one of the most used and loved messaging app worldwide. Even if the app is more than enough for most of the users, that doesn’t mean that some imitations can’t appear. Also, many users are feeling limited by the features offered by the original app. This is the case when other modified apps are coming in our way, offering the features lacking in the first place. The best examples are GBWhatsApp and WhatsApp Plus, which are now very popular and used by users, even if the original WhatsApp is trying hard to fight against them.
GBWhatsApp and WhatsApp Plus Might Shut Down
After many battles between WhatsApp and the other modified apps, short bans, and users receiving fixes to return to their malicious app, Facebook is taking action. The action started last year in June when WhatsApp applied a temporary ban to all the users that are using the modified versions such as GBWhatsApp and WhatsApp Plus.
The official statement from WhatsApp says that the users will receive a message saying “temporarily banned.” It is clear that if you receive a message like this, you are using a modified version of WhatsApp. You must switch to the official app, and if not, your account will be banned forever from WhatsApp.
WhatsApp Encourages GBWhatsApp and WhatsApp Plus Users to move to the Official App
If you are trying to switch to WhatsApp and don’t know-how, the company has a step by step guide to help you with the process. This will help you not to lose all your chat histories or contacts. What is interesting in everything that it’s happening is the fact that GBWhatsApp is shutting down for good.
The developers have announced the fact that no more future releases will launch for their app, and they are shutting everything down. In conclusion, GBWhatsApp is no longer a threat to WhatsApp, and its bans have worked. However, we don’t know anything about WhatsApp Plus and what the developers will do with their app in the future.
